Worst The Simpsons Episodes from the First 10 Seasons

RickyReeves
Even though I love the first 10 seasons and this was a pretty hard one to choose.

The Top Ten

1 The Principal and the Pauper (Season 9)

Maybe it could've worked in Season 1 or 2. Like maybe before finding out his father was in the army. It was a funny episode but it shouldn't have aired in Season 9. Just in earlier Seasons when it was just starting. How the other Skinner would've been an awful Principal and the "imposter" was the best.

This episode almost probably ruined The Simpsons itself, and of course ruined Season 9. - RickyReeves

Matt Groening even said that this episode had a terrible plot in "Behind The Laughter"

The episode is ridiculous and shouldn't have been made, because his father was in the army with Homer's in an earlier episode (They also forget Mr Burns age he was supposed to be only 81 but now he's older than 100+ but no one else ages, you know a 3 year old Maggie) but it has some funny bits.
The beginning Skinner likes dog food, and Homer eating it.
Principal Skinner? Up yours children
Maybe the ending bit.

2 The Simpsons Spin-off Showcase (Season 8)
3 All Singing, All Dancing (Season 9)

I enjoyed this one... Why is it here?

4 Homer Simpson in: Kidney Trouble (Season 10)

Homer is a jerkass well shut up and change the channel.

I hated this episode. It's worse than any of the first ten seasons. Also the worst 90s episode. Jerkass Homer at his worst in the 90s. - truespongebobfan

5 Homer the Smithers (Season 7)
6 Simpsons Bible Stories (Season 10)

This episode actually sucked, but the episodes ending saved it and was quite memorable, and lets not mention it was quite blasphemic as well. - RickyReeves

Bad.

7 Homer's Odyssey (Season 1)
8 A Millhouse Divided (Season 8)

Too much drama in this episode to be honest - RickyReeves

Glad to see this one here, and this high. Everywhere else I go, everyone talks about how great this episode is. There was indeed too much drama like RickyReeves said. Also, though, prior to this episode Milhouse's parents were really just that, nothing more. Effective this episode, well, now I wanted to punch my T.V. every time either of them appeared or spoke.

9 My Sister, My Sitter (Season 8)

This episode was so god awful. Lisa is trying so hard to prevent Bart from being mischievous, but always fails. The jokes weren't funny, it was just painful to watch. In my opinion, the absolute worst Simpsons episode of all time.

Funny Episode, but I don't really agree with the ending... - RickyReeves

This episode is horrible. It is torture to watch - DoubleJ2005

10 Another Simpsons Clip Show (Season 6)

Not a fan of Simpsons Clip Shows... This one earns a meh from me.

The Contenders

11 Saturdays of Thunder (Season 3)
12 Monty Can't Buy Me Love (Season 10)
13 When You Dish Upon a Star (Season 10)
14 Viva Ned Flanders (Season 10)

Clearly they were reaching as far as ideas. Kind of glad they killed off Homer's "other wife" eventually, but they shouldn't have done that plot either way.

Mainly how the hell is Ned in his 60s.

What?

15 Fear of Flying (Season 6)
16 Bart Gets an F (Season 2)
17 Mountain of Madness (Season 8)
18 Homer's Night Out (Season 1)
19 Lisa Gets an 'A' (Season 10)

I loved this one... Homer and Lisa's stories were so funny, with Homer in the end eating his lobster and crying... Who would put this on here?!

Why is this on here it's hilarious

I hate when the only comments are defensive whining
